If you thought you heard the patter of little puppy feet this morning on TODAY, you weren't imagining it.
Our little pup is about to take on an amazing journey with NBC's TODAY. This opportunity is a win-win-win for all parties involved, and VetDogs is excited to share information about who we are, who we serve, and how to be a part of our community. This puppy is going to have an amazing experience.
When our pups are around 4 to 6 weeks old we evaluate their temperament using various stimulation tests and tools. This allows us to determine which puppies have the greatest potential to one day be a guide, service or hearing dog.

I need to be safely exposed to as many different environments and situations as possible. A well-socialized puppy will have fewer adjustments to make when they come back to VetDogs for formal training.
